As many of you know, Gabriel, our First Mate and Mad Scientist, has been having a lot of health problems.
We haven't expounded on them. He has bad teeth, the result of incompetent dentistry.
Several of these have become so severely infected that even several courses of antibiotics have not knocked it back.
Tomorrow, Gabriel goes in for oral surgery. With these bad teeth gone, we hope his health will improve and he won't spend a week prostrate with pain, looking as if he has the mumps every time a pressure system moves through.
Any good thoughts you can send tomorrow afternoon would be appreciated.
